Product variations should use parent product's weight when calculating shipping

Currently every product, including variations, must have weight specified in order for shipping calculations to work correctly. (I have only tested this with the USPS module) It would be expected that product variation products would use their parent product's weight if their weight is null/blank in order to calculate shipping.

This would save a great deal of time for stores like one of my clients who has 10+ variations on many products and is using a shipping module to calculate shipping costs.

    The solution is to use the smart_attr function which will get the parent's weight. The UPS module has been updated with this. Closing out.
